Who is ubhejanex?

uBhejaneX is a registered non-profit organisation, which aims to raise funds to facilitate rhino conservation, interventions aimed at eliminating rhino poaching and securing the white and black rhino populations in South Africa.

Rhino’s in crisis

South Africa is one of the last countries with a significant population of rhinos in the wild. However, more rhinos are being poached than are being born, resulting in a rapidly declining rhino population, with more than 5 000 rhinos poached in the last five years. This can largely be attributed to the demand, mainly from the Far East, for rhino horn, due to its supposed medicinal and aphrodisiac properties. As a result, there has been an explosion in the illegal trade of rhino horn.

  • One rhino is killed every seven hours by poachers in Africa
  • Shockingly, less than 28,000 wild rhinos survive in the world today
  • 90% of the black rhino population has been lost in the last 40 years
  • Rhino horn is worth $25,000/kg on the black market
